Camping kit for couples

Posted by Matt Sterne on 30 April 2018

Add intimacy to your adventures with these double-up items.

1. Gang hang


Get cosy in Sea to Summit’s Pro Double Hammock (3m x 1,9m), designed to hold a combined weight of 240kg. The ripstop nylon is a highly breathable fabric that absorbs and draws moisture away. The hammock comes with a water-resistant, durable storage sack and steel buckle. Light to carry (450g), it’s perfect to take on camping or hiking trips.

2. Zip it Scotty


This K-Way Traverse Cowl Sleeping Bag zips together with another to form a double for lovely snuggling. The cowl is like a large ‘hoodie’ providing, warmth for the head and neck area. The polycotton inner helps to keep you toasty and dry.


3. Sofa so good


The Oztrail Galaxy 2 Seater Sofa with arms is perfect in front of a fire on a romantic camping trip. With cup- and wine-glass holders on each side, a mesh elasticated pocket (on the back) to stash snacks and a small pocket for your phone or mozi repellent, you can snuggle up to your partner with all your necessities in easy reach.

4. Nothing but net


Stop mosquitoes spoiling your romantic buzz with Sea to Summit’s Nano Mosquito Pyramid Net Double. It provides more space above your head because of its shape, and an overlapping flap at the base (with an elasticised drawstring) gives the net an easy, bug-proof seal.


5. Pump it up


This queen-size Premium Airbed from Bestway inflates to a height of 48cm, and comes with a pump for easy setup. The built-in pillow and flocked sleeping surface offers extra comfort.
